Paperweight from Mexico


Country: Mexico
Artist: Unknown
Composition: Glass, Wood, Cork
Pieces: 1

This nativity was purchased on eBay and the origins are unknown. The seller stated it was from Mexico and the style gives credence to that claim. There are handwritten markings on the back that show a symbol along with some alphanumeric characters. Depending on how you look at it, the characters could represent the number 71, possibly indicating a date, or the initials IL. I have seen pictures of two other paperweights almost identical to this one, but no identifying information was present with those photos.
